Community Forum November 2018

Dozens of local people and organisations have met together with the area’s health service commissioners to talk about local health and care services and to see how they can play a role in shaping services for the future.

The North East Hampshire and Farnham Community Forum brought together members of the public and representatives of statutory and voluntary bodies with leading GPs and professionals from the local Clinical Commissioning Group (CCGs).

Attendees at the event, at North Hants Golf Club, in Fleet, received information on some of the main developments in local health services before meeting each CCG leader in turn, with the opportunity to ask questions and have conversations with them.

People were also asked to make personal pledges as to what they could do themselves to improve their health and wellbeing, and also what they could do for their communities. The outcomes included a range of promises, from walking and cycling more, cutting out sugar from diets, to launching a wellbeing programme at work and linking up with other voluntary sector organisations.
